Karl-Anthony Towns put up 26 points and 14 rebounds while leading the Timberwolves to a victory over the Lakers on Wednesday and the impressive performance earned him an appearance on Inside the NBA.

The interview quickly got goofy, as things often do on the show, and Towns and fellow big man Shaq had a little back-and-forth, with the rookie showing off an impression of the Hall-of-Famer.

Shaq’s “Seven-foot Drake” riposte is pretty solid though, so Towns should get ready for opposing fans to repeat the joke quite a bit for the next few away games.
